Article Title: Play&Tune: User feedback in the development of a serious game for optimizing hearing aid orientation
Abstract: Many hearing aid (HA) users are dissatisfied with HA performance in social situations. One way to improve HA outcomes is training the users to understand how HAs work. Play&Tune was designed to provide this training and to foster autonomy in hearing rehabilitation. We carried out two prototype evaluations and a prerelease evaluation of Play&Tune with 71 HA users, using an interview or online survey. Users gave detailed feedback on their experiences with the app. Most participants enjoyed learning about HAs and expressed a desire for autonomy over their HA settings. Our case study reinforces the importance of user feedback during app development.
